A Tractor Accident Can Happen to Anyone

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Mitch Ricketts (Faculty), Jul 10, 2012

This would be a good film for a college course in agricultural safety (that's how I plan to use it). It does a nice job of illustrating the practical application of safety concepts to actual situations, and it includes case studies of real injuries. For the sake of accessibility, it would be nice if the video came with a transcript or closed captioning. My only other concern is that the video demonstrates some hazardous practices (right versus wrong) with an operator on the tactor. It might be better to illustrate the "wrong/unsafe" practices with animation to better convey the message that risk taking is never acceptable (not even when filming a safety video).

Technical Remarks:

I did have to download a different version of RealPlayer to view the video; however, everything worked fine after that.
